ATM operator Bitcoin Romania has partnered with Romanian e-payment services company, Zebracoin. This company has been in business since 2009 and is responsible for the operation of the terminals. These machines work only one-way allowing users to buy Bitcoin with the Romanian leu (RON).

The terminals do not require any identification. However, users will be charged a fee of 4% commission on each transaction.

Users just might be able to pay for utility bills, phone bills, internet charges and more.
